St. James AME Church has been praising God together for over 152 years.  We are under the leadership of Reverend Reginald E. Jacobs, Sr.

God's vision for the Saint James ministry is to be intentional in sowing spiritual seed for the spiritual growth of HIS people.  Plans are underway in the developing of 7 plus acres of land, that we would increase our territory for the building of God's kingdom.  The Saint James ministry is proud to have purchased a new church van as we embark into a newly formed transportation ministry, in addition to our newly established youth choir and praise dance ministry. 



To continue to engage in spiritual growth, to become an equipping and mobilizing church that transforms our world for our Lord and Savor Jesus Christ.
